The machine runs for brief periods, then shuts itself off. If it is allowed to sit for several minutes, it runs again, then shuts itself off.


the motor is heating up to much and the cut out switch is kicking in. You need to check the the motor filter, and worse case you may need to new motor..

I have a proforce 2500 watt generator and it cuts out is this caused by low oil? if I change oil how much does it get?


Low oil doesn't usually make engines cut out. Clean the air filter, change the plug and wire. If this doesn't help then I think you're looking at a carb. problem. Probably just clogged jets & ports. It's very common on small engine carbs. It shouldn't take more than 2 quarts of oil. Probably not even one.

Check for dirt in gas tank some times stuff will fall in when filling and block the hole in bottom of gas tank and wont let gas flow clean everything out and see if it works. Also check that all kill switches are tight and not moving.

Honda GX160 runs fine for 5 minutes then dies like out of fuel.


I would look for the fuel filter. Blow it our. I know you have a new tank of gas, but you might want to empty it out and make sure the clean and put in new. Even with Stabil in the gas you might just have to much condensation in the tank

My honda gx160 generator keeps cutting out after 2 mins


Sounds like fuel flow is restricted.
Is the vent cap on the gas tank clear?
Pull the fuel hose off at the carb and let run into a container from the tank......is fuel flow good while filling a cup or two worth of fuel?
If not check filter at fuel switch or at hose connection at tank for restriction.
It takes about 2 minutes to use up fuel in the carb with engine running.
Sure sounds like a fuel problem.

Makita G11oo portable generator. starts on choke. cuts off run


Just noticed your question... If you still need a little help:
1. If the gas is from last year, drain the tank and the carb bowl and replace gas with new. Visually inspect the inside of the tank ..be sure there's no sediment that needs to be cleaned out.
2. remove air cleaner and make sure it's not plugged or dirty
3. plug the spark plug and clean with spray carb cleaner.
4. At end of season, mix some gas stablizer in with the fuel to keep it from going bad while in storage.

Let me know how it goes..

Check your tank for contaminants (water, trash, dirt, monsters, etc), as well as the balance of the fuel system. You may also need to remove the carburetor and clean it out, particularly if the generator has sat for more than a month with fuel in it (most do, including mine) and now has deposits. The only thing that the choke does is make the mixture rich by cutting off the air.

And just for grins, look at the spark arrestor screen on the muffler. This can be related and problematic as well.
